Frequently Asked Questions About Pony Parties

Beautifully Trained, Beautiful Gentle Natured Ponies

How Much Work Do The Ponies Get?

For those of you interested in the welfare of party ponies, we consider our guys as our valuable ‘little business partners’.   Everyone needs a good working environment, a good living environment and excellent ‘pay’.  Not only that, everyone needs a holiday – time away from work!  So, we have 11 ponies,  who work on a roster, we also monitor them on party days for any signs of “I’m so over parties”.  What any of us don’t want are grumpy little, over worked party ponies who go out weekend after weekend (and they are out there – so beware for you kids safety – we take this seriously).

One of the first comments we receive from parents, apart from ‘what a awesome party, can we have your business card?’ is ‘I can’t believe how placid & calm your ponies are!’   Thanks :-)  We work hard to ensure this is the case.

Are The Ponies Clean and Cared For?

And another thing you’ll notice at the party – our ponies are beautifully presented and are a picture of health – bright eyes, shiny clean coats, groomed out manes and tails (with sparkles added), oiled and  ‘manicured’ hooves.  We love our ponies and we love to bring beautiful, joyful ponies with us.  I have an enthusiastic team of pony assistants who help prepare ponies for the weekend every Friday, you’ll get to meet some of them at your party.

Our ponies live at at home, so they are seen at least twice a day.  Regular care takes place such as feet trimming, worming, a stay in the ‘Jenny Craig’ paddock over Spring plus extra grooming or clipping to remove long winter coats; rugs & extra feed in winter; fly masks & light weight rugs in Summer (to stop coats bleaching in the sun and protects against flies and mosquitoes).

Can Older Children Ride On The Ponies?

Pony Rides For Bigger Kids

Appropriate Sized Ponies For Kids Parties

Yes they can as we have a selection of different pony breeds and sizes for kids to safely ride on.

The very small Miniature Ponies/Horses, are predominately our performing  and groovy groomer ponies.  These are  too small for the majority of pony ride parties, they are OK for age 1 to around 4 years are, but really, it is way better to have an appropriately sized pony for the animal’s health & comfort AND  not to mention the kids safety & enjoyment.

Shetland Ponies – suit kids up to around 7 years and are built to take some weight.

Welsh Mountain Ponies – are perfect for older kids age up to around 12 years.

Who Picks Up The Pony Poo?

We always clean up after the ponies during the party and at the end – so no pony poop for little kids to accidentally step in.

Will You Cancel Our Party If It Rains?

Rainy Days – Not a problem for us :-)  Our easy going little ponies will happily walk under an umbrella and if you have an undercover area like a garage, carport or pergola, then the kids can get on and off under shelter – and besides you know what kids are like – little things like rain doesn’t dampen their day – and neither ours.  “Rain, Hail or Shine, Balloonaversal Will Guarantee A Great Party Every Time”.

And aside from that – we just don’t cancel a booking under any circumstance … any.
